I went to the doctor the other day because my eye was all red and puffy, and they sent me to the opthomologist (spelling?) at the hospital.Well, I thought it was from allergies, so I didn't really think much of it.Little did I know, I could have lost my eyesight!!! I have an ulceration on my cornea and they aren't sure if it was from bacteria or a parasite.They gave me antibiotic eye drops for it that I have to use every 2-3 hours.I go back to the opthomologist tomorrow morning to find out if it's working or not. But, they said that if I had waited any longer to come in, I would have either had to get a cornea transplant or loose my eye.I guess I'll have to start taking things like this more seriously because I wasn't going to do anything about it.It's not red anymore, so I guess the drops are working.I'll post tomorrw on what I find out...hopefully it's good news.

Don't look for cornea trouble, it will come to you. Be well, Empress, and mind those eyes in future!

I'm living proof that you can't wait too long to get medical problems straightened out. It would be a real bitch for someone at your age to suddenly lose their eye-sight. Make sure you follow the doctor's order's to a T. Good luck, and take care of those peepers!

Thanx guys! I just got back from the doctor. He said I will be fine and that it was going away.They limited my eye drops to once every 8 hours,and I go back in 3 weeks so they can see if it goes away completely. :p I'm glad that's over with...they just about blinded me with all those lights they stuck in my eyes. I'll have a headache for at least the next 2 or 3 days. :D
